The North Surrey Sports and Ice Complex is the newest addition to Surrey’s sport and recreation program delivery. The design features a heavy timber roof, with glulam trusses, as well as a prefabricated panelized wood roof.
A comprehensive programming exercise with the City and user groups established the current design and layout of the building. Using a design-build delivery model, the arena was conceived in 2017 and was completed in Fall 2019.
The 134,000 square foot facility features three ice sheets and will support the community need for ice sports; hockey, sledge hockey and figure skating. 1 and 3 can accommodate 100 spectators, while arena 2 can accommodate up to 500 spectators with retractable bleachers for large events.
The infrastructure of the ice sheets also provides venues for lacrosse, basketball and trade shows. In addition to ice facilities, the building features spectator bleachers, viewing areas, fitness facilities and amenities including a gym, spin, room, yoga room, and café. The Complex also includes physiotherapy facilities, an ice plant and resurfacing areas, storage and administration offices.
